Liz and Claire: i LOVE che, i was pretty clueless about him and his purpose until i went to cuba a year ago, AMAZING country, seriously, its gorgeous and the people are so lovely but its so poverty stricken and their are police EVERYWHERE, i recommend going there ANYWAY lolz i met the guy in Slumdog Millionaire and he told me to check it out so i will stick to my promise to anwar from skins and i will go and see his movie i wanted to see milk, i was off ill and watching E!News and it was being reviewed on there it looked really good, also i love James Franco. NOM.
Beckii- I thought Memoirs of a Geisha was such a beautiful film beckii, it captures you, i read the book a while ago but i think of the book and film very seperately. But the whole cinematography is beautiful in the film and its a good film generally. The film is very good, im not sure whether it will live up to your expectations of the book but i do recommend watching it.
If you haven't seen The Motorcycle Diaries, Liz, then I would suggest you do so asap if you're interested in Che! It's simply one of my favourite movies and Gael plays him with such heart. I believe Che Pt1 is more in the thick of revolution - when Che has become the revolutionary we know him as - but, The Motorcycle Diaries is about him becoming a man and the things he sees on his journeys through Argentina, Chile, Peru, etc. It's based on Che's actual diaries. It's in Spanish though - I don't know if that makes a difference, lol, I know a lot of people don't like to watch foreign films because the subtitles annoy them. Personally I'm a huge fan of Spanish movies and foreign film in general.
Thanks for that tip Claire - I haven't seen this yet! But I'm going to watch it now, before I watch Che! I actually love foreign films. My mum and I have watched alot of them, mostly from Mexico. One of my favourite films is El Violin - definately worth a watch if you like foreign movies!
Has anyone seen Twilight? I have, and didn't find it as wonderful as people say. It was very good and a nice film, but it wasn't anything epic. But then again, I haven't read the book. Anybody have any views?...
I wanted to see slumdog milionaire today but it's only on at a time that will mean me and my freind will miss the last bus/train home grah thanks you very much. we will have to watch something else then ...
oh and twilight is a great film..eventhough I've read the book ;D
but im really into war movies I think one of my favourites is Joyeux noel which is in French, english and German it was so effective on showing all sides
I am ashamed to say i prefer foreign movies to hollywood blockbusters i dont know why, i want to say they show a more ... Pure storyline... Such as bollywood movies, they dont get caught up in graphic storylines sometimes you dont need a full nude sex scene, just the build up to the kiss is enough and i saw a really good german movie.. of which i forget the name about teenage boys coming to grips with Gayness... they were at a rowing camp, and the other team were all homosexuals and one of the boys started feeling things.. that he didnt think was right but yeah... it was good

I have both of those movies I think...well I definitely have a copy of Sommersturm to watch. I think I have Joyeux Noel as well. Good to know that they're good. I'll watch them soon maybe.
Edit: Speaking of gay German movies (lol), I watched one about football. And a guy is kicked off his team for being gay, so he starts an all gay team. That was really funny. I liked it a lot. I think it was called Balls or something.
